QUAD SQUAD

Canadian pairs figure skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford will show off their signature quadruple throw Salchow in the short program. The two-time world champions suffered through dozens of crashes to perfect the move, which sees Radford hurl Duhamel four revolutions through the air. Radford has joked that as he tosses his partner he offers his best wishes of "Good luck!" The duo will be skating to Adele's Hometown Glory.

10,000 MANIACS

Canadian speed skater Ted-Jan Bloemen will go for his second medal of the Games when he races in the 10,000 metres. A brutal event that taxes even the fittest of athletes, the 10,000 m requires remarkable physical and mental stamina. Bloemen is the world record-holder in the event with a time of 12 minutes 36.30 seconds. He'll face a stiff challenge from Dutch star Sven Kramer, who edged Bloemen for gold in the 5,000 on Sunday.

MYSTERY MEN

Canadians will finally get a look at the mysterious men's hockey team on Thursday. Team Canada opens the Olympic tournament against Switzerland. Fans are eager to get to know the Canadian players, most of whom play in Europe. While the Canadians are technically the defending champions, the gold medal is up for grabs given the absence of NHL stars such as Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin.

TOUGH SLEDDING

It's been a roller-coaster few weeks for Canada's luge relay team. In December, it appeared they may be gaining an Olympic bronze medal - Canada's first in the sport - after two Russians had their results from the 2014 Games nullified. But the decision was overturned a few weeks later by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, meaning Canada's fourth-place finish four years ago would likely stand. The drama only makes Sam Edney, Alex Gough, Tristan Walker and Justin Snith more determined to reach the podium in Thursday's relay.

ARCH RIVALS

It's probably going to be a tight contest when Canada's women's hockey team faces the United States in round-robin play. Canada won the six-game pre-Olympic series against their arch rivals 5-1, but Thursday's game is guaranteed to be intense and likely a preview of the Feb. 22 gold-medal game. Canada has won the past four titles at the Winter Games, including four years ago in an overtime thriller.
